Library History

The White Swan Library moved from place to place for its first 22 years. Then, in 1969, the Library moved to its present location, in the unincorporated area of Yakima County. The Native American book collection and White Swan resident Paul Asher Cottrell's scrimshaw carvings honor local traditions.
